This idea of a forum specific to male nurses issues has been requested several times over the years. After careful consideration, we have decided to go ahead and open the forum for men to discuss issues that are specific to them in the feild of nursing.
The objective of this forum to allow males in nursing a place to discuss topics that are specific to males. Please keep the forum on topic, professional, clean, and non-sexist in nature. Let's all post with respect to others and make this forum a success!
Links to the new forums:

Male Nursing Student Forum
Please feel free to start posting new threads to kick off the new forums.

I don't think that this needs to be a divisise thing or looked at in the eyes of dividing the nursing community, I think that with all the request by male nurses for this forum, there must be issues that, as the minority sex in the field of nursing, feel they would like to discuss?? So, if the forum remains professional and on topic, I can only see positive things coming from having an open forum where men can voice their comments. Just my

A separate forum does not convey this at all to me. It seems one-sided. Perhaps because i do not see nursing or anything for that matter as "female" this or "male" that.
Flame away, please.
